Gift Certificate vs. OBC

Recommended Posts

Hello,

 

Quick question. Is it possible to call RCCL or the travel agent and add a certain amount of OBC directly to our account, or does one have to buy a gift certificate and then redeem said gift certificate to receive OBC?

 

The website is a bit muddy in regards to this. On other lines, I’ve been able to just purchase OBC directly, but in our cruise planner it only shows gift certificates for sale.

 

Any insight?

 

Thanks in advance,

 

Steve

I also think that RC gift certificates can only be used to book a new cruise.

They can be used for OBC, but must be called in/sent in before the cruise.

I'm bumping this old thread with an add on question....

 

I just used this link to redeem my $100 certificate for OBC. Does anyone know if or where this might show up on my cruise planner? I tried calling, but was on hold forever, so I thought I'd ask here.

It won't show up in your cruise planner. There should be a card in your cabin when you board that acknowledges the gift certificate, and it should show up in your onboard account by day two.
